The A-C-T-S method of prayer is foundational to Prayer Prompter’s approach to “Meditation and Prayer.” R.C. Sproul discussed A-C-T-S in a blog post several years ago. Here is an excerpt.

“Christians often use a simple acrostic as a guide to prayer: A.C.T.S. Each of the letters in this acrostic stands for one of the key elements of prayer:

(A) Adoration

(C) Confession

(T) Thanksgiving

(S) Supplication

I think it is a helpful acrostic for remembering both the elements and the priorities of prayer. Unfortunately, we often spell our prayer life something like S.C.A.T., because we start with supplication and spend very little time, if any, on adoration, confession, and thanksgiving.”

A-C-T-S - Priority

Notice that the image from his post shows the letters in priority order by size. What a great idea!

Praying Scripture ★★★★★

I needed a means of focusing my prayer life. One can’t go wrong with an app that provides scripture as a basis for daily prayer. Categories are editable; options are limitless. Everything from prayer lists to a prayer journal, daily reminders and lots and lots of related scriptures are all included. Great app!
